-Israel: Ancient Jacob's name was changed to Israel:.Genesis 32:27,28 "And he said unto him What is your name? And he said, Jacob. And he said Your name shall be called no more Jacob but Israel, for as a prince have you power with God and with men and have prevailed.(see.#3.just below)."

What had led up to this name change?.Genesis 32:24-30.

Those of the 'house of David' are proceeded from the 'house of Jacob':.Luke 1:27; Matthew 1:1; Hebrews 3:6. Israelites are physically the people of ancient Israel. Today, who are they?

And Paul, the great apostle, in talking to the Gentiles in Galatia, said:.Galatians 3:26-29 "For you are all the children of God by faith.(as opposed to qualifying by works you regard as being spiritual that you feel you must do to be accepted).in Christ Emmanuel. For as many of you as have been baptized.(why is physical baptism now not relevant?).into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Emmanuel.(now it's a spiritual relationship as compared to the ancient Old Testament's physical relationship shown by the Mosaic Law's over 600 physical things to do to keep in an interrelationship with a spiritual being, God). And if you be Christ's then are you Abraham's seed.(and Abraham's seed Jacob had a big family:.Genesis 35:23-26).and heirs according to the promise."

Galatians 4:26 "But Jerusalem which is above is free.(open to all).which is the mother of us all." John 3:6 "That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

With the Holy nature of the Great Infinite One having been given to us and now being adopted into the Family of God, the physical status no longer matters:.Galatians 3:26,28,29; 4:26; 6:15,16; Romans 9:6-8; Ephesians 2:12. It's now a spiritual Israel, that is, those realizing their connection with the Creator are part of this spiritual Israel:.Galatians 6:16 "And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them and mercy and upon the Israel of God."

History of Israel; 12 tribes of ancient Israel; Israel in archaeology; captivity of; spiritual Israel; English nations history.

Why Israel? Why did God choose these particular people out of all those nations.(Genesis 15:19-21).on the Earth at that time? 2Samuel 7:23 "And what one nation in the earth is like thy people, even like Israel, whom God went to redeem for a people to himself, and to make him a name and to do for you great things..."

In Romans 9:3,4 Paul says that those who are in Christ are 'Israelites', spiritually speaking. 

The word 'Israel', today denotes a spiritual 'Israel', an invisible.(because it's inside us).nation, a spiritual nation of those high consciousness souls who have inherited the promises:.Romans 9:6,8; Galatians 6:16; 1Peter 2:9.

Old Testament things were shadows of things in New Testament times; like Jerusalem.

There are three names used in the New Testament to designate this people Israel, a people who came from the man Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel.

The three names are:
1).Jews, as regards their nationality, to distinguish them from Gentiles. The name 'Jew' is derived from the patriarch.Judah.(New Testament spelling is 'Juda').and was at first given to one belonging to the tribe of Judah or to the separate kingdom of Judah.(which comprised only two of the original 12 tribes, Judah and Benjamin); these became known as Jews, in contradistinction from those belonging to the separate kingdom of the ten tribes, who were called Israelites.(see map). Just as the name Israel in the New Testament refers to one's spirit, one's spirit that is now of God's high consciousness and out of the base low consciousness of mankind, so it is also with the name Jew:.Romans 2:29.

The Israelites originally were all known as being of the person Jacob. At first they were all called Israelites until two of Jacob's.(whose name was changed to Israel:.Genesis 32:27,28).sons, Benjamin and Judah, split off from the original twelve sons, as predicted by the prophet Ahijah:.1Kings 11:29-32. This was in accordance with God's purpose at the time.

They all eventually became large tribes as their descendents increased, with the 10 becoming the Israelites and the two becoming the nation of Judah.(map).

During a later captivity and after the physical restoration of ancient Israel.(Isaiah 1:26; 11:11,12; 27:13; 40:2; 60:10; Ezekiel 36:8-15; Zechariah 1:17; 10:6; 14:11; Malachi 3:4).where they returned from captivity, the name however, was extended to all the Hebrew nation without distinction:.Esther 3:6,10; Daniel 3:8-12; Ezra 4:12.
   Jews today are:.Romans 2:28,29. Israelites today are.

Israel will again be one nation:.Jeremiah 3:18: Ezekiel 37:21-23.

2).Hebrews.(*), with regard to their language and education, to distinguish them from Hellenists, i.e., Jews who spoke the Greek language. The name is derived, according to some, from Eber. The Hebrews are 'sons of Eber':.Genesis 10:21. Eber was the ancestor of Abraham..American Tract Society:."The Hebrews rarely use concrete terms, as they are called, but often abstract terms. Thus, instead of saying 'God saves them and protects them', they say 'God is their salvation'."

3).Israelites.back then, as respects their sacred privileges as the chosen people of God, chosen to be a physical nation back then to be an example of what the Creator is to the world that then was:.Exodus 19:5; Deuteronomy 7:6-8.

Israel originally was the name conferred on Jacob after the great prayer struggle at Peniel.(Genesis 32:28), because."as a prince he had power with God and prevailed.".This is the common name given to Jacob's descendants.

The whole people of the twelve tribes are called 'Israelites', the 'children of Israel'.(Joshua 3:17; 7:25; Judges 8:27; Jeremiah 3:21).and the 'house of Israel':.Exodus 16:31; 40:38; Luke 1:33.

Did the ancient Israelites just arrogate the lands from those who were possessing it?.Judges 11:12-33.

After the death of Saul in Old Testament times, ten of the twelve tribes of ancient Israel arrogated to themselves this name of Israel, as if they were the whole nation.(2Samuel 2:8-10,17,25-28; 3:10; 19:40).and the kings of these ten tribes were called 'kings of Israel' while the kings of the two main tribes.(Judah and Benjamin).and the small tribe of Simeon.(Joshua 19:1).were called 'kings of Judah'. The prophets had foretold of the split:.1Kings 11:9-13.

Soon after the death of Solomon, Ahijah's prophecy.(see.1Kings 11:29-32).was fulfilled and the kingdom was rent in twain.(B.C.E. 975-722). Israel split.(map).into a north and a south kingdom. The northern kingdom was called Israel. The southern kingdom was called Judah. About the tribe of Levi and the Levitical priesthood. 

Each kingdom had its own prophets.

The ancient nations which came from the man Israel, today are scattered among most all nations:.Joel 3:2 "I will also gather all nations and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and parted my land."

The kingdom of the ten tribes of Israel was successively invaded by several Assyrian kings. Pul.(an Assyrian king:.1Chronicles 5:26; 2Kings 15:29).imposed a tribute.(tax).on Menahem.(king of Israel at the time).of a thousand talents of silver.(B.C.E. 762).and Tiglath-pileser, in the days of Pekah.(B.C.E. 738).carried away the trans-Jordanic.(tribes on the other side of the Jordan River).tribes and the inhabitants of Galilee into Assyria:.2Kings 15:29; Isaiah 9:1

Comprised with.New and Concise Bible Dictionary.and.Fausset's Bible Dictionary:.There were six minor captivities during the era of the judges, namely, that by Chushanrishathaim, Eglon, the Philistines, Jabin I of Canaan, Midian, Ammon and another by Hazael of Syria.

In addition to these, there were other great captivities of Israel and Judah..Why God brought these captivities upon these people:.Ezra 9;6,7; Jeremiah 11:7,8; 25:9; Hosea 5:4; Habakkuk 2:18,19.

The captivity of Judah.(2Chronicles 36:10).followed in four detachments:

Nebuchadnezzar-II, B.C.E. 606, carried away the sacred vessels and captives, among whom were Daniel and his companions. This formed the commencement of the "times of the Gentiles":.2Chronicles 36:6,7.

The second captivity was in B.C.E. 599, when Jehoiachin had reigned three months. It is called the great captivity. Zedekiah was left as a vassal of Babylon:.2Kings 24:14,17; 2Chronicles 36:10.

The third captivity was in B.C.E 588:.2Chronicles 36:20.

The fourth was in B.C.E. 584 under Nebuzaradan:.Jeremiah 52:12-30

The 70 years of captivity foretold by Jeremiah 25:11,12 commenced B.C.E. 606 and expired B.C.E. 536 when the Jews returned to Judaea by the proclamation of Cyrus king of Persia:.Jeremiah 29:10 The captivity is referred to in Matthew 1:11,17 as 'the carrying away'. The places to which Israel and Judah were carried are considered under their respective names. They retained possession of the land, under many changes and vicissitudes within those changes, until the Messiah appeared. His rejection and crucifixion resulted in the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 A.D. and the scattering of the Jews to all parts of the world."

Then Sennacherib in B.C.E. 713 carried into Assyria 200,000 from the Jewish cities he captured:.2Kings 18:13

Nebuchadnezzar-II carried away many to Babylon in B.C.E. 588:.2Kings 24&25 chapters

Comprised with.Easton's Bible Dictionary on captivity of Judah:

"In the third year of Jehoiachim, king of Judah, B.C.E. circa 600, Nebuchadnezzar having overcome the Egyptians at Carchemish, advanced to Jerusalem with a great army. After a brief siege he took that city and carried away the vessels of the sanctuary to Babylon and dedicated them in the Temple of Belus:.2Kings 24:1; 2Chronicles 36:6,7; Daniel 1:1,2. He also carried away the treasures of the king, whom he made his vassal; from this time is dated the "seventy years" of captivity:.Jeremiah 25:1-14; Daniel 9:1,2

Daniel and his companions were carried to Babylon at this time. The king seing the abilities and potential of Daniel and his friends caused him to decide that they would be brought up at the court and trained in all the learning of the Chaldeans. After this, in the fifth year of Jehoiakim, a great national fast was appointed:.Jeremiah 36:6,7. During this time the words of God were read:.Jeremiah 36:10. King Jehoiachim, to show his defiance, cut up the leaves of the book of Jeremiah's prophecies as they were read to him in his winter palace and threw them into the fire. In the same spirit he rebelled against Nebuchadnezzar who again a second time, in B.C.E. 598, marched against Jerusalem, put Jehoiachim in chains, carted him off to captivity in Babylon and placed Mattaniah, Jehoiachim's uncle, on the throne instead and had him use his other name, Zedekiah:.2Kings 24:10-17

After a troubled reign of eleven years Mattaniah/Zedekiah's kingdom came to an end:.2Chronicles 36:11-17. Nebuchadnezzar, with a powerful army, besieged Jerusalem and Zedekiah became a prisoner in Babylon. His eyes were put out and he was kept in close confinement. The city was spoiled of all that was of value and then given up to the flames. In B.C.E 586, the temple and palaces were consumed and the walls of the city were leveled with the ground and all that remained of the people, except for a number of the poorest class who were left to till the ground and dress the vineyards, were carried away captives to Babylon.

The land was now utterly desolate and was abondoned to anarchy. In the first year of his reign as king of Babylon, in B.C.E. 536, Cyrus issued a decree liberating the Jewish captives and permitting them to return to Jerusalem and rebuild the city and the temple. The number of the people forming the first caravan, under Zerubbabel, amounted in all to 42,360:.Ezra 2:64-67

Besides 7,337 men-servants and maid-servants. A considerable number, 12,000 probably, from the ten tribes who had been carried away into Assyria no doubt combined with this band of liberated captives. At a later period other bands of the Jews returned. In B.C.E. 458 many returned:.Ezra 7:7

The great mass of the people remained still in the land to which they had been carried and became a portion of the Jews of the "dispersion":.John 7:35; 1Peter 1:1. The whole number of the exiles that chose to remain was probably about six times the number of those who returned. 

On captivity of Israel comprised with Easton's Bible Dictionary and.Fausset's Bible Dictionary.

"The kingdom of the ten tribes was successively invaded by several Assyrian kings.

Pul in B.C.E. 762 imposed a tribute on Menahem of a thousand talents of silver:.2Kings 15:19,20; 1Chronicles 5:26.

Tiglath-pileser, in the days of Pekah, king of Israel, B.C.E. 738, carried away the trans-Jordanic tribes.(those tribes residing on the other side of the Jordan river).and the inhabitants of Galilee into Assyria:.2Kings 15:29; Isaiah 9:1. Subsequently.Shalmaneser, king of Assyria invaded Israel and laid siege to Samaria, the capital of the kingdom, because, after letting him remain as a tributary prince for a time, at last when Hoshea omitted to send his yearly tax and made a league with So or Sabacho II of Egypt.(of which the record still exists on clay cylindrical seals found at Koyunjik), put Hoshea in prison and besieged Samaria three years and in the ninth year of Hoshea's reign in B.C.E. 721, took it and carried Israel away to Halah and Habor by the river Gozan, districts in Mesopotamia and Media and to other cities of the Medes:.2Kings 17:1-6. During the siege Shalmaneser died and was succeeded by Sargon in B.C.E. 721. Sargon, according to the Assyrian monuments, completed the capture of Samaria which Shalmaneser began. He took over the captivity and transported the great mass of the people into Assyria, placing them in Halah and in Habor.(Halah was a district in Media; Habor's location is unknown today, but probably somewhere in ancient Mesapotamia).and in the cities of the Medes:.2Kings 17:3,5

"Samaria was never again inhabited by the Israelites. The families of the ten tribe thus removed were carried to distant cities, many of them not far from the Caspian Sea and in their place, the deserted land was colonized by various eastern tribes from Babylon and Cuthah, etc., whom the king of Assyria sent there:.2Kings 17:24

"Thus terminated the kingdom of the original twelve tribes, all having come from Jacob, in B.C.E. 975, after a separate duration of two hundred and fifty-five years. 

A more definite date is given for the captivity of the remaining portion of Israel in 2Kings 18:10,11. It was in the ninth year Of Hoshea king of Israel and the sixth of Hezekiah that Samaria was taken by the Assyrians after a siege of three years ending in B.C.E. 722. The captives were carried to Halah and Habor by the river of Gozan.(also 1Chronicles 5:26 with Hara added there)."

Many speculations have been indulged in with reference to these ten tribes who became scattered throughout the east. From there, they may have migrated up into what is today known as Scotland, England, Ireland, South Africa, United States of America, etc. and from those places, throughout the world, being mostly throughout the countries once comprising the now done away great British Empire, which at its height of greatness in the early 1900s, included over 20 percent of the world's land area and more than 400 million people. At this time the empire was so extensive that the Sun never set on it, that is, there was always a part of it where the Sun was shining. It was that vast.

Prior to the beginning of Israel, the people were in bondage in Egypt. They were a stubborn and pigheaded people who time and again would live as they wanted.(Jeremiah 44:16,17), then get into trouble and call on God to help them. And God would. But after.so much.vacillating, it was time for a major lesson and that was to be serious captivities. But, it still didn't do any good as this lesson in history wrote. Something had to help them with their low conscious ways keeping them at that level. And so Christ came to change the heart, the only thing that can change a person and all persons in the world. And Christ does this by not sending people into captivity, but by exposing them to higher consciousness ways and from there, they can take it further. How?

-U.S.A. Congressman Dennis Kucinich.(D. Ohio) (kuh-sin-itch).wrote a letter to the Secretary of State, who at the time was Condoleezza Rice, bringing up questions as to why what is named Israel today, is becoming crueler.(article at commondreams.org), giving a bad image to the dear, gentle, helpful, kind and intelligent Jews worldwide.
   And are they using weapons banned by international law?.(article at commondreams.org or search Google or Bing)
